Minnesota Chippewa Tribe


Louis Johannsen was back with us today to tell us about upcoming events with the MN Chippewa Tribe - comprised of the 6 bands Bois Forte, Fond du Lac, Grand Portage, Leech Lake, Mille Lacs and White Earth

U.S. Supreme Court rulings in Wisconsin in 1983, and in Minnesota in 1999, affirmed the off-reservation hunting, fishing and gathering rights in territories ceded by the Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) in 19th century treaties with the Federal Government.  These and other court rulings explain why treaties still matter today.
